Smash mats have been so motivating for my students to help them reach their goals. I have been working with a particular student on expanding utterances, so I created a smash mat activity to motivate her!
Print and laminate the strips. Included are strips for 2,3,4, and 5 word utterances.
Use a photo, book, or object with the strip for the student to describe.
Write words with a dry erase marker or use a picture in the empty circles for the student to describe. As they produce each word, have them smash the ball of PlayDoh below.
